Misc Stuff

(and other things)


In my copious free time I dabble in these things. Fish, plants, cars, gardening, cooking, wristwatches, Unix/C (since 76!), photography and more.


But enough about you, let's talk about me. Born in Wales, grew up in Canada, moved to Los Angeles, California for 10 years, moved back to Canada. I like it here. The book of face says I live in Palo Alto because in 2008 it insisted on a cell phone number so I gave it Zuckerberg's. Almost immediately my location changed to Palo Alto from Toronto (where I live) and two years later the phone number disappeared. I hope all those people (like the East Palo Alto roofing company) that paid to advertise locally got a refund. My servers are located a few blocks from Marc's house, but this is an artifact of historical coincidence.


I have an opinion of lots of different things. Mostly complaints about software and hardware and the 21st century Internet.
